    The Nikon pro 440 claims to be within 1/2 a yard. I was thinking of getting one for this years ASA shoots.

    for 2007 they are having a marked yardage 20 target round. you can use a rangefinder for those 20 targets.

    Ok I'll bite....If its marked yardage why would you need a Rangefinder?

    I have a Nikon 440 Rangefinder. I believe it is dead on. I took it to our outdoor range where the yardages are marked and checked it against them. It was within 1/2 yard of those out to 50 yards.

    I have a 440 and it's real accurate. I haven't measured off enough targets to say it is definately within a 1/2 yrd, but I believe it is.

    the Yardage pro legend in black

    like the simple two button operation.....small size and accuracy of the unit...

    dislike the 350 price tag.....til I owned it and used it......

    I don't have one, my sisters boyfriend does, he has the Nikon 440 I believe. Its great, replaces bino's due to the 8x lense, very easy to use:

    1. Push button, crosshairs shot up on the display (eye hole)
    2. Line up cross hairs on what you are ranging
    3. Push button and reading is displayed on screen
    4. shoot!

    They are truly amazing.
